An easy groove leads to a ledge and a slightly harder groove leads to a shakeout below the headwall. Ignoring the loose flake on the right, blast up the sustained headwall passing three bolts to reach an abseil station.

Finally. Bled quite a bit all over this on my first go. Sorry. Don't get too attached to the RH foot ledge or you can't move left.
